    Maryland Successfully Implements State-to-State Verification Service 

    AAMVA congratulates Maryland on successfully implementing the State-to-State Verification Service (S2S) during the weekend of January 31, 2016 and becoming the 3rd participant using the new service. Maryland will now be able to use SPEXS to perform its CDLIS and S2S functions. Maryland can now track pointer information related to its Base Driver Licenses, Permit for Base Driver Licenses, and Identification Cards. This supports, among others, limiting any person to only one driver's license. All migration activities have completed ahead of schedule. CDLIS and S2S services are fully operational now. Indiana will be the next state to take benefit of the S2S functionality. This will occur over the weekend of February 20. Other Jurisdictions will also begin using the S2S in the upcoming months and AAMVA looks forward to supporting them during their onboarding process. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the AAMVA Operations Department at 1-888-AAMVA80 option 1 or helpdesk@aamva.org
